CWA workers are on strike against Randell Stephenson and his board of directors. They have given the order not to bargain in good faith. The three days off have been actually quite nice. I have rested, cut firewood and actually been able to resume my life. We all say we should have struck when they wanted us to work 14 hours a day in January and February but we didn’t because we actually care about our customers.
It’s common knowledge makes 49,000 dollars an hour yet he wants to push more of our health costs on to us. He’s always claiming how he cares about his team of employees but he and his buddies outsource his job to India and other Third World countries. This past winter I never worked so hard and repaired a lot of lines that were brought down by the harsh winter rains. I’m tired and spent. This too will pass
